2. Collected Information

Our Website has the ability to collect two types of information from and about you: (a) information that you provide that personally identifies you and (b) information that does not personally identify you that we automatically collect when you visit our Website or that you provide us.

Personally Identifiable Information: Our definition of personally identifiable information includes any information that may be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as your name, postal and email addresses, phone number, credit card information, etc. In certain circumstances, we may request, allow, or otherwise provide you an opportunity to submit your personally identifiable information in connection with a feature, registration, or some other aspect of our Website. For instance, you may: (a) provide your name, address, and email address to register on our Website to purchase training seminars; (b) provide certain demographic information about yourself (e.g., age, gender, purchase, preference, usage, frequency, etc.) when registering on our Website; (c) provide payment information when ordering services on the Website,  (d) post a general comment and/or recommendation on our Website, (e) provide information for listing on our Directory, or (f) images.  Certain information may not be personally identifiable when standing alone (e.g., your age), but may become so when combined with other information (e.g., your age and name).  Whether or not you provide this information is your choice; however, in many instances this type of information is required to participate or purchase the particular activity or service, or gain access to certain content on our Website.

Non-Personal Information: Our definition of non-personal information is any information that does not personally identify you. Non-personal information can include certain personally identifiable information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We may obtain non-personal information about you from information that you provide us, either separately or together with your personally identifiable information. We also automatically collect certain non-personal information from you when you access our Website. This information can include, among other things, IP addresses, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.), the third party website from which your visit originated, the operating system you are using (e.g., Vista, Windows XP, Mac OS, etc.), the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, NetZero, etc.), the search terms you use on our Website, the specific web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits.

We collect this information: (a) directly from you when you provide it to us; (b) automatically as you navigate through the Website; and/or (c) from third parties, for example, our business partners.

When you submit information to us through our Website, you should be aware that your information is transmitted across the Internet and that no method of transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. Although we take reasonable security measures to protect your information when we receive it, you also need to ensure you take appropriate steps to protect your information.

3. Use of Information

The personally identifiable information collected through our Website is generally used to fulfill your requests for our training, programs, and services, as well as directory listing, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, to personalize your online experience, for our newsletter, for internal record keeping, and in other ways naturally associated with the circumstances in which you provided the information.  We also may use this information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, market research, offering you other trainings, programs, or services that we believe may be of interest to you, or to communicate with you about content or other information you have posted or shared with us via our Website.   We are also required to share certain information with various organizations for compliance purposes related to EMDR trainings and workshops, including, but not limited to the APA, EMDRIA, and NBCC.  We may share or sell your personally identifiable information with third parties such as our partners, contractors, vendors, consultants and professional advisors to the extent necessary for them to perform services on our behalf.  In response to a legal process or law enforcement request we may disclose personally identifiable information. We also may disclose personally identifiable information if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our terms of use, or as otherwise required by law. In addition, we may transfer your personally identifiable information as part of the assets of our company if we are, or parts of our business is, sold to, merged with or acquired by, a third party.

We may use your non-personal information by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others. We may share your non-personal information with our affiliated companies and third parties to achieve these objectives and others.  In no event is this information matched to your personally identifiable information, and aggregate information is anonymous information that does not personally identify you.

Agents and contractors of the Maiberger Institute who or that have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for us.  We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information provided to us in ways unrelated to the ways described above without also providing you with an opportunity to opt out of these unrelated uses.

4. Other Uses and Information

IP Addresses.  We may collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report non-personal aggregate information to others, and to track the use of our Website. IP addresses are considered non-personal information and also may be shared as provided above. It is not our practice to link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable; that is, the visitor’s session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. However, we reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Website rules or: (a) to fulfill a government request; (b) to conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) to protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Website, or other users; or (d) in an emergency, to protect the health and safety of our Website’s users or the general public.

Cookies. “Cookies” are a small file, which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.  We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.   A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.  You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer.   However, this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.  Please note that advertisers that serve advertisements on our Website and third-party content providers that serve content on our Website also may use their own cookies and other technological tools which are subject to the advertiser’s privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy.

Email Communications. If you send us an email with questions or comments, we may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send non-public personal information, such as passwords, credit card information, social security numbers, or bank account information, to us by email. However, aside from our reply to such an email, it is not our standard practice to send you email unless you request a particular service or sign up for a feature that involves email communications, it relates to purchases you have made with us, we are sending you information about our other training and services, or you consented to being contacted by email for a particular purpose. In certain instances, we may provide you with the option to set your preferences for receiving email communications from us; that is, agree to some communications but not others. We reserve the right to send you transactional emails such as customer service communications.

Other Disclosures. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, we reserve the right to disclose any personally identifiable or non-personal information about you if we are required to do so by law, with respect to copyright and other intellectual property infringement claims, or if we believe that such action is necessary: (a) to fulfill a government request; (b) to conform with the requirements of the law or legal process; (c) to protect or defend our legal rights or property, our Website, or other users; or (d) in an emergency, to protect the health and safety of our Website’s users or the general public.

6. Keeping Your Information Secure

We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. In the unfortunate event that your “personally identifiable information” (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; provided, however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.

If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by writing to us: [email protected].
